Shrinks

The Untold Story of Psychiatry

A world-renowned psychiatrist reveals the fascinating story of psychiatry´s origins, demise and redemption.

Psychiatry has come a long way since the days of chaining ´lunatics´ in cold cells and parading them as freakish marvels before a gaping public. But, as Jeffrey Lieberman reveals in his extraordinary and eye-opening book, the path to legitimacy for ´the black sheep of medicine´ has been anything but smooth.

In SHRINKS, Dr Lieberman traces the field from its birth as a mystic pseudo-science through its adolescence as a cult of ´shrinks´ to its late blooming maturity since the Second World War as a science-driven profession that saves lives. With fascinating case studies and portraits of the luminaries of the field, from Sigmund Freud to Eric Kandel, SHRINKS is a gripping and illuminating read. It is also an urgent call-to-arms to dispel the stigma surrounding mental illness and to start treating it as a disease rather than a state of mind.

Portrait

Jeffrey Lieberman has spent over twenty-five years caring for patients and studying the nature and treatment of mental illness. He is the former President of the American Psychiatric Association, Chairman of Psychiatry at Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, Psychiatrist in Chief at Columbia University Medical Center-New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Director of the New York State Psychiatric Institute.
